    A question for you good people - if I buy the Ltd edition with the Heroes and Villains dlc, can I play the game without the dlc? I don't really fancy having Dr Vu and Maxis Man running around my redneck dirt factory.
    I'd also like to know this. It's what put me off buying the limited edition, guessing that I'll be able to get it as DLC later if I want to.

    So far the only sight of it has been a challenge speech bubble for each side.

    Looks like they're updating servers. They're all rolling offline.

    Welcome to Sim City! I guess the first weekend was always going to be nightmarish. Between losing over an hours progress and not being able to access servers I'm ditching it for a few days, too frustrating.

    The patch has improved the logon to the servers.

    However managed to get to EG ridge but it wouldn't let me join any of the cities in the region, I also can't message teamHAM through origin.

    Hmmm

    Got the game and playing on my 3 year old laptop with nvidia 9600 card. Plays pretty well on medium settings but it looks very plain without lighting and shadows. Sim City 4 is better looking tbh. Still, enjoying and looking forward to seeing how things will develop.

    I was having issues with this till I maxed out on school buses. It's still not totally fixed but my city with 6000 unfilled $ jobs, (from a population of 20k) went way down after I made sure as many folks as possible were being schooled.

    My worry now is over the long-term fate of my metals mining. As it's a finite resource when all the ore has been mined my city, as planned, is basically over and I'll have to repurpose it for something different. On the bright side, I'm making money hand over fist. Had well over a million last night. Which bring me to a question;

    For EG County (originalz) what Great Project should we aim for?

    With everything on max this is absolutely stunning. It's fun just watching the city.

    Also, found a great tip on the forums for those who are running out of water. Put a water plant right next to a sewage treatment plant. The latter pumps out waste water which can then be pumped to your sim from a never ending supply. Just make sure you go into edit mode and demolish the original water pump and only use filtration units. Double the cost but they don't run out, which will otherwise happen as the replenishment of water is a server side issue and we all know how well that shit is working.

    Hmmm, a 1.6 user score on Metacritic - is that good? ;)

    Just picked this up. Up for some EG related fun once I get a hang of it/the servers start working properly.

    Don't hold your breath on the latter - this farcical DRM 'always on' gaming is an enormous clusterfuck.

    I've only had the waiting screen once and the server disconnects were caused by my wifi, which has gone funny recently.

    I was tempted by this, was glad i held off seems like a total disaster, Would love to have had some EG megacity fun. Its clear there were better ways of doing what they set out to achieve but cleary they thought the DRM aspect was the priority.
